A unique optical A/D converter topology takes advantage of high-speed optical components while generating signal samples in the electrical domain. The topology uses optical clocks and photo-diode switches to sample the electrical input. The electrical samples are demultiplexed using the same optical components and quantized via a sampling card. The sampling rate is increased to 10 GSPS using a flash architecture.
